to the rest of the world, if you look at germany, uk, japan, france, all of whom have very strong gun regulations, we have more gun deaths in one week than they have in an entire year, and the incidents -- the number of times in which guns inside a home are used for self-defense are exceedingly small, on the order of maybe 1 in 15, 1 in 20 as compared to the number of times when a gun is used either for suicide or a homicide. anybody that looks at the data here is quite clear that on the whole, particularly things like assault weapons, create far, far more kor nage in th carnage in this country than they prevent. to a large extent the reason why i think progressives have not been able to mount an effective campaign for sensible gun laws, it's been a failure of the progressive movement, and i think that will now change with progressives. they must realize they have to make this an election issue. all of the polls show that the public is widely in favor of sensible gun regulations. i will point out what i said on friday. president clinton after columbine when we were meeting in the oval

challenge. we haven't seen anything like this since 25 years ago in the japan situation, but it's actually even more significant this time, dan, because really the american job generation machine has slowed down dramatically. and we've let our business environment get less and less efficient. we've let the cost of doing business rise up. we've got -- we're losing many, many more investment decisions and business activities to other countries than we're getting back. and yet, the political debate including the one we're having this morning is really not about the really important things. it's not about skills. it's not about the fundamental structure of reforms we need to make in our budget, our tax system. we're kind of -- we've gotten ourselves into a kind of a short-term day-to-day dialogue. we're not really addressing the real issues. >> a couple things going back to jpmorgan. first of all, we learned time and time that no man, no human being is smarter than the markets. not anybody. that's number one. and number two, with regard to the banks and the size of the bank, we got rid of glas

in south korean japan, the rogue nation has fired a long-range rocket tonight in defiance of the international community. the missile was reportedly launched at 9:51 a.m. local time. it's unclear whether the launch was successful. sometimes they just fall into the water. but japanese officials say tonight they believe the missile passed over okinawa, japan. north korea announced at the beginning of the month they intended to launch the missile, but there were reports as recently as this afternoon they had had to dismantle the rocket to make repairs to it. again, tonight it appears north korea has in fact fired the rocket. this is north korea's second rocket launch under its new leader, kim jun un. a similar rocket broke up less than two minutes in flight. officials claim this launch is intended to put a weather satellite into space. but many officials and many in the international community believe north korea may be testing its capability to one day launch a long-range nuclear warhead. this comes at a politically sensitive time. neighboring south carolina is set to hold i
